When I first started dating my wife Emily, she brought a book with her containing a brilliant array of questions to help us get to know each other. Even though that may sound intimidating on the surface, it really turned out to be a lot of fun and the book genuinely functioned as advertised. A few weeks ago that book came up in conversation, and it occurred to me to find the author, Laurie Seale, and have her on as a guest. It turns out she is a regular 'Jaqueline Of All Trades'...and as smart, charming and fascinating as you would expect from someone who wrote such a book. In this episode we discuss the trials and tribulations men and women have nowadays when creating conversation with each other, along with some genius ways to kick off first date communication in a positive way. Laurie talks about the value of knowing yourself before seeking to know someone else, along with how to break the ice on such topics as passion, purpose, lifestyle, past relationships, basic compatibility and spirituality. She then suggests ideas for when you're in a hurry, along with offering some wise words on sussing out dealbreakers. Just for good measure, there are some fun stories along the way to illuminate the whole human dance of mutual romantic discovery.
